I've been an admirer of Alex Rodriguez's artwork for awhile now, and it's really not to hard to see why. Drawing under the pseudonym 'itsajackal,' Alex Rodriguez is an American artist who has mastered the art of realistic illustration, using only a pencil in most cases to execute these highly technical works of art.
As you can tell by the images in this gallery, Alex Rodriguez's subjects are usually urbanite females, but what truly sets Rodriguez apart from his peers is his ability to get these models to emote in extremely quirky ways, which produces illustrations that are completely engaging for the audience. I can't help but be fascinated by every aspect of Alex Rodriguez's work.
